The Urban Challenge & The Urban Odyssey - COVID-19


The Urban Challenge continues to respond to the unprecedented situation with Coronavirus COVID-19. Our thoughts are with our schools, staff, parents and students through this difficult and unsettled time, and we can’t wait to be back to normal and running our program again at some point in the future.

Please see below some important information:

  • We are currently working with all of our school partners to reschedule affected school programs to a date later this year. This is a progressive task and we are working with each school individually to establish the best plan. If you are scheduled for an upcoming Urban Challenge program with your school, please consult with the school for the most up to date information from them.

  • After much deliberation we have made the decision not to go ahead with the planned Urban Odysseys (Duke of Edinburgh expeditions) in the April school holidays. We are currently liaising with parents and participants in order to reschedule the journeys. Please keep an eye on our web site for updated information and we appreciate your patience during these unprecendented times while we work to help everyone complete their Gold level adventurous journeys.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff and participants and we will continue to monitor the advice from the authorities and act accordingly. 

Operationally, our office space has been adjusted to adhere to spatial distancing guidelines and we have a number of staff working from home in order to manage the current health risks. We hope that all our staff, their families and our partners stay well as we work through this difficult time together.
